Marathon Training Month 1

I have to say that this has been a challenge that I did not see coming. I am now a month in my training for my marathon and the only word to describe how I feel is sore. I am sore all over. My legs, back, ass, and arms are so sore. I still get out of bed every day and head to my next workout with a smile on my face and give it anywhere from 97% to 100%.

I have had a lot of people ask me about my training plan. I have not really shared what I have been up to but this is how my first month has gone.


Morning- Crossfit (1 hr) & Meditation or Yoga (15 to 30 mins)
Evening- Cross Training (30 mins)


Morning– Comfortable Run 3 to 5 miles


Morning– Crossfit (1 hr) & Meditation or Yoga (15 to 30 mins)

Morning– Run 5 Mile Build Up


Morning– Crossfit (1 hr) & Meditation or Yoga (15 to 30 mins)
Evening- Cross Training  (30 mins)


Long Run from 5 to 7.50 Miles


Rest Day

This has been my schedule for this past month but in month two we are switching it up a bit. My long runs are going to average from 7.50 miles to 10 miles. I won’t have anymore build up runs. They will be strict race pace runs. I will also be having my 3 mile jogs mostly on Thursdays. I am going to attempt to burn at least 1000 calories a day as I try to lose as much weight as possible before the marathon. I am going to set a new meal plan out in the next couple of days and change some bad habits I made in month one.

I have to say that I have not missed a scheduled run or a Crossfit class. My family and friends have been so supportive and understanding during this first month. I know that as the months go on, it will get harder but I have a great support system.
